The Brattle

A classic trio of the flutes and whistles of brother and sister Fintan and Sheena Vallely and bodhran and washboard of Londoner John Say. Their music is an enervating selection of Irish Traditional dance and harp tunes which come from their diverse experience and travel, session, concert, céilí dance and Folk festival performance. In the 1980s they played together as The Brattle, and now are back together for February and March prior to recording their material. Sheena is well known on the London and Bristol scenes, and ahs played tours in Germany – with Berlin band Midnight Court, with Sinéad Hayes and Tobi Kurig, and with Robbie Boyle and band in Berlin; she is on several albums which range from the strict Traditional to the avant-garde. John Say has played in many London-based bands including The Screaming Abdabs and house bands at The Shillelagh and other venues in Stoke Newington, London.
